I'm sure that not only the 68040 Amiga Linux code but also the NetBSD/Amiga
68040 code (which is much closer to what we need) will be an immense help.
The problem is that we have no documentation on how to reach the keyboard on
any of the 68040 machines.  In addition, the effort to integrate the 68040
MMU support is below three-hundred man-hours of other stuff on our to-do

If you're interested in trying to make the kernel 68040-compatible, keep
an eye out for the MacMiNT and MachTen compile toolkits that we are working
on.  Those should allow you to compile MacBSD on your Mac xxxxx (if we have
enough time to finish them).


- MachTen is a trademark of Tenon?
